Kurtz warned all Catholics to stay away from the event, since the Vatican clearly states that anyone participating in female ordinations will be excommunicated. Smead is 70 years old, marched for civil rights and lived for years as a cloistered nun. Could she be the Rosa Parks of female priesthood? [Source]
